Just had a fruit and vegetable van stop by at the front of the Subdivision.(first time ever). We got a phone call from the guard (plus others) that he was there. Not a bad selection, the usually stuff,,, prices were a "bit" high but considering the convenience (as we can't get out) no problem... very happy.

So now people over 60 must stay at home?  Who made THIS new rule?  Will it be 50+ next week?  I was at Metro Ayala Cebu yesterday - plenty of 65+ shopping.

Citylights Gardens got passes yesterday - 1/condo.  I can only imagine what's going on at each Barangay office.....

65+ - they're going by the statics that y those over 65 represent the highest percentage of deaths and the average life expectancy is only 69 here - 79 in US which is wrong since it does not factor out our wars

Yep - they said not enough for house - why do I get the feeling some houses ($$$$$) got more than 1?

Sorry, is yours a Barangay Pass or the Green Pass "signed" by Edgardo C. Labella., Mayor?

neither the Application Form or the Pass itself has anything about any age restriction.

This is the way out, but it has to be water tight (meaning if positive the percentage to be immune most be very high and also that you cannot spread the virus, but instead kill the bug in your body once it reaches you. I hope they do it right, for me it seems little test to the safeguards above have been made. However this is tge approach to take as you break the chain and such people could go everywhere, even in hospitals, delivery etc. to help out, as you cannot be infected anymore - again if water tight).

"If you start coughing not good" definitely a  bad sign if not already showing signs of a cold / flu - if have one  = normal to expel mucus

Did 71 sec - almost my age -  didn't pass out - smoked for almost 40 years  :dance2:

Did a Google search, urban myth as test for Wuhan Virus but is good indication of lung capacity.

Breath-holding capability of adults. Implications for spiral computed tomography, fast-acquisition magnetic resonance imaging, and angiography.

Abstract

PURPOSE:

The breath-holding capabilities of various groups of individuals were evaluated to develop protocols so that patients undergoing spiral computed tomography (CT), digital angiography, and breath-hold magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be studied successfully.

METHODS:

Twenty-five outpatients and 25 inpatients (all adults) were studied before undergoing body CT. Each subject was asked to hold his or her breath for as long as possible. Then each patient was asked to perform as many repetitive 12-second breath holds as possible. These data were correlated with demographic and historical information.

RESULTS:

The maximum breath-hold time for inpatients and those outpatients who were heavy smokers or had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or congestive heart failure (CHF) was 18 to 32 seconds (95% confidence interval) with a mean of 25 seconds. For all other outpatients, breath-hold time was 38 to 56 seconds (mean = 45 seconds). The 95% confidence interval for the number of 12-second breath holds for these two groups was 4 to 6 breath holds (mean = 4.9) and 6 to 7 breath holds (mean = 6.6), respectively. One inpatient could not hold his breath at all and three others were only able to hold their breath once for short periods. The sex and age of the patient had no significant effect on breath-holding performance.

CONCLUSIONS:

Breath-holding protocols must account for the diminished capabilities of most inpatients, and outpatients who are heavy smokers or have COPD or CHF. Most outpatients who are not heavy smokers or without COPD or CHF can achieve a single breath hold of 38 seconds, or up to six 12-second breath holds.

The breathing thing has to do with fiberous tissue in lungs guess if you get sick breathing becomes hard because of fiberous.   So if you can hold your breath 10 seconds and when expelled your not coughing i read that is a good sign you dont have fiberous in lungs
